Stainless Steel Wire Mesh Material

Material: 304 304L 316 316L

Type 304 generally refers to “18-8” (18% chromium, 8% nickel). Most of them are basic stainless steel alloys, which are quite suitable for the mesh. It can be exposed to the outside, and will not rust or be oxidized when the outside temperature rises to 1400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Type 304L is very similar to T-304, the difference is that the carbon content is reduced, which is more conducive to weaving and re-welding.

Type 316 can be stabilized by adding 2% molybdenum. T-316 is an “18-8” alloy. It is less susceptible to corrosion than other chromium-nickel stainless steels in brine, sulfur water, or halogen salts. For example, chloride is an obvious example. The most valuable feature of T-316 is that it has stronger creep resistance at rising temperatures. Other mechanical characteristics and structural characteristics are the same as T-304.

Type 316L is very similar to T-316, the difference is that the carbon content is reduced, which is more conducive to weaving and re-welding.
